Title: The Guidebook to Sociolinguistics
Written By: Allan Bell
URL: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0631228659.html
Description:

The Guidebook to Sociolinguistics offers students a comprehensive introduction to the main ideas and terms of sociolinguistics, along with an understanding of the aims, methods, and findings of sociolinguistic research.

The book explores the three main strands of sociolinguistics -- multilingualism, ethnographic-interactional sociolinguistics, and variationist sociolinguistics -- covering both macro to micro issues. It begins with multilingualism, and moves on through language choice and variation to style and identity. It also introduces readers to the methodology and skills required to produce hands-on sociolinguistic research, and leads students through the challenges involved in conducting their own research project. Alongside practical examples, a range of helpful classic and contemporary case studies and exercises are included.
Informed by the latest social and linguistic theory, and written by one of the leading figures in the field, The Guidebook to Sociolinguistics offers illuminating insights into the complex relationship between language and the social nature of human beings.
